The American Aberdeen Junior Show is held in Denver, Colorado during the National Western Stock Show in January. It offers female, steer and showmanship competitions.
The annual AJAA Auction is a big part of the annual member banquet (also in January during the National Western Stock Show) and is also one of the primary fundraisers for the AJAA.
2022 AJAA Junior Show and Banquet
Being back in Denver for the 2022 National Western Stock Show, the American Junior Aberdeen Association had a successful turn out with support from members of all ages. Before our junior show on Friday, the Junior Board members offered coffee and donuts to members as they passed through the main aisle, thanks to the donation of Pine Hurst Farm. The show on Friday afternoon saw a good turn out with just over 50 entries and highly competitive showmanship classes to end out the day.
On Saturday evening, the Junior Board hosted the annual live auction during the banquet with about 30 lots and several sponsorship opportunities. The juniors were able to fundraise approximately $13,000 to be put towards the Junior National Show in Chillicothe, MO, June 20-25. We would like to thank everyone that came out to support the show and the juniors this past week in Denver, and cannot wait to see everyone again in Chillicothe.
